Wetlands…reminds me of home.

My sisters and I lived some of our childhood years in Florida where we spent many days at the beach and when we moved to Charleston, SC there were even more days at the beach. As children do, we would run after these little sandpipers and of course, they would scamper away from us. In and out of the water both the little birds and my sisters and I would run. Small things do bring back happy memories.

I wish I could remember the name of the artist that did this original layout. The way I used the drafting tape to color the background was by trial and error. I like the way the color are muddled together rather than in a straight line.

Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper

What a difference color makes both in card stock and lighting. Normally I would not photograph in such different lighting situations but I tore up the white card to make the “hot” card and couldn’t duplicate the lighting or the backgrounds. I did made a few changes on the second card…rounded the corners and added the pearl to the focal point. I like both…which is your favorite?
